Julienne's pastry shop in Halifax
...Have you been? What should one order if going? Thanks =)
I haven't been to the pastry shop but I received a particularly witchy and snotty remark in response to a question I asked at their market stall one Saturday morning which turned me off their product. I now buy my bread and pastries at Boulangerie La Vendéenne in the basement and they are absolutely excellent!
I prefer La Vendéenne's bread, and croissants. The crumb generally has a more developed gluten structure, and the crusts are more substantial. I find Julien's breads look great, but lack oomph.
I can't really handle the market, so I pick their bread up at Pete's. It is usually stocked there towards the end of the week.
